This act requires the Public Utilities Commission, in consultation with the State Energy Resources Conservation and Development Commission (Energy Commission), the Independent System Operator (ISO), and other key stakeholders, to determine the requirements for a smart grid deployment plan consistent with the policies set forth in the bill and federal law. In addition, the act would require that the smart grid improve overall efficiency, reliability, and cost-effectiveness of electrical system operations, planning, and maintenance. The act would require each electrical corporation, by July 1, 2011, to develop and submit a smart grid deployment plan to the commission for approval. The bill would authorize a smart grid deployment plan that is adopted to provide for deployment of smart grid products, technologies, and services by entities other than electrical corporations. The act requires the commission to report, by January 1, 2011, and by January 1 of each year thereafter, to the Governor and the Legislature on the commission's recommendations for a smart grid, the plans and deployment of smart grid technologies by the state's electrical corporations, and the costs and benefits to ratepayers.Year: 2009•State: California•Type: Act or Session Law•Source: California Legislature
